Pete: MacGyver, take care.
MacGyver: I usually do.
MacGyver: This untracked wilderness reminded me of my Minnesota backwoods, full of the beauty of old Indian legends. I was only too happy to be a part of the Phoenix Foundation's effort to map it out and make it a National Preserve, and to be honest, it was just nice being here.
Joanna: It looks like your man MacGyver has some catching up to do.
Pete: Don't worry. In a little while they'll be chasing his tail.
Joanna: Sure have a lot of faith in this guy. What makes him so special?
Pete: You know, I've known him for eight years now and I've never quite been able to put my finger on it. He just always comes through, no matter what.
MacGyver: One of my biggest problems is I can never leave a puzzle alone, and this ship sure qualified.
MacGyver: Well, I don't believe in ghosts. I believe in explanations. Reality is strange enough.
